Posted by March 26, 2018 Comment

Are you ready for the next Star Wars: Galactic Nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May 27th? The park will transform into a Star Wars lover’s paradise, complete with food inspired by the massive Star Wars galaxy! Disney Parks Blog gave us all the details about the upcoming dishes:

Drawing inspiration from the beloved characters, worlds and stories, our culinary team has created a whole host of gourmet bites just for the occasion, including a few new offerings, such as the Dueling Gazpacho. This dish is a standoff between spicy red pepper and cool cucumber-melon, and was inspired by the famous lightsaber duel between Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and Sith Lord Darth Maul.

Dueling Gazpacho

Next up on the list of new items is the Three-Cheese Pasta with a Meatball – a bold pasta inspired by the brave and persevering Resistance Movement, with creamy three-cheese sauce and a spicy lamb and beef meatball, a truly perfect pairing. There’s also the Sweet and Spicy Fried Drumstick. This honey-chili glazed drumstick is served with a pepper jelly biscuit, because what goes better together than chicken and biscuits?

The Lemon Diver Scallop with Pork Belly unites land and sea, and is available exclusively at The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge. Also exclusive to this location is the Tofu and Rice Noodles, inspired by the vibrant and diverse capital of the galaxy – Coruscant. This contemporary dish features a medley of pan-seared tofu, leeks, red onions and noodles.

If you love the adorable Ewoks, then you’ll love the new Soba Noodle Salad, a dish that complements the Ewoks and their habitat on their Forest Moon of Endor. This vegetarian dish consists of chili-soy Soba noodles, cucumbers and carrots and is topped with a hard-boiled, chili-glazed deviled egg. But that’s not the only new vegetarian dish – there’s also the Plantmeat on Rootcrush! Inspired by Unkar Plutt’s concession stand on Jakku, this ration of vegetarian meatloaf, mashed potatoes, root vegetables and mushroom gravy will get you energized to go trade with the scavengers.

These Cheese Grits are inspired by Mon Cala and feature a savory steamed crawfish smothered in decadent Louisiana boil broth served on top of sweet corn cheese grits. Also filled with flavor are the Loaded Red Curry Duck Fries. Based on the Battle of Crait, these seasoned fries are topped with duck confit, red curry ketchup and white blended cheese sauce, a snack that’s sure to ignite the spark of hope to any rebellion.

Fish and Chips with Smoked Paprika Remoulade comes with root vegetable chips and is sure to have you reminiscing of Lah’mu. And if you’re up for more seafood, then you won’t want to miss the Ancho-Chili Octopus, exclusive to BaseLine Tap House. This dominant dish of octopus and jicama, pear and cucumber slaw was inspired by the Sarlacc, the legendary creature found in the Dune Sea region of Tatooine.

That’s right, those bright blue and red churros are back along with the tasty Lightsaber Churro Sundae with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. Other returning sweets include the Sweet and Crunchy Popcorn, the Star Wars-themed Orange Truffle Cupcake, the Mini-Éclair Trio, and the Glow Cotton Candy.
